Today we stayed over and extra night in Morro Bay, so it was a lookin’ around day. We slept in, the went down to San Luis Obispo (12 miles away) to spend the day without any real plans. As we got down to SLO, we actually decided to go 20 miles north to Paso Robles to check it out. We went to the southwest part where several vineyards were located, and after looking down one road, we went a bit further and stopped at Peachy Canyon Winery, whose wine I have had before and enjoyed. I went inside and tasted several while Kellie relaxed outside. The property is an old schoolhouse (or is located where there was one), and one of the four or five vineyards is located next to it.
In the tasting room, I loved the 2008 Cabernet Franc which actually had a strong jalapeno essence, as the tasting notes suggested. But I decided to purchase a bottle of 2009 Zinfandel from the Mustard Creek vineyard, to have in the days we are at my parents’.
Afterward, we went back to downtown SLO to eat and get Jamba Juice. We drove through Cal Poly-SLO and stopped by the dairy unit. They were milking the dairy cows but we didn’t stay to watch. We did go by two grocery stores to look for their chocolate milk, but it must be difficult to find during the summer break, when students aren’t there full time. We did buy some chipotle jack cheese made at Cal Poly, though, and it is great.
We ate at a small Thai restaurant near the hotel and it was great. Driving to Agoura tomorrow!
